I bought alienware m15x yesterday, but still waiting to received it due to bad condition they are not able to deliver it today and before I bought it I did a lot research so chose alienware Happy Bday
alienware, macs are overrated
Yeah the alienware looks aewsome. My brother is trying to convert me to a mac user but i dont like the fact that some software that you get on windows can be installed on the mac.
I concur. I love my alien
It can still be installed, you just have to run windows on your mac using parallels or VM Ware or something like those.
Anyway, I just got a mac about a month ago and I love it. I've been a long time PC user and I found the switch to be pretty easy.
Aren't Alienware's gaming PCs anyway?
On another note, I wish when I was 18 someone bought me a car and a new computer...
Used to be a mac user a long time ago, but got fed up with nothing running on it. Sure you can run PC stuff on it, but its not the same. Once you start using a mac you will be amazed at how much cool software is not written for it.
I have 2 macs here, I never use them...
Mac ftw .
Alienware is cool and has awesome design but it's way overpriced if you're just looking for performance. If you're willing to pay alot more for a pretty PC, knock yourself out.
If I'm reading it right you are getting an i5 with 2 GB ram and a logo for 850 pounds.
400 can get you a noname desktop with 16 GB ram and an i7 CPU. That's at least 10 times more useful for games and IM. If you still want a notebook to do some work while flying or lying in bed or whatever, get some 12" dual core for another 350 or so.
Yeah that was what i was thinking Monrox , I seen some stunning custom gaming pc's and the specs are amazing. Might have a good look now
Most Def. a MAC
Still undecided need more bribing lol
Got a MacBook Pro 13" now for more than a year and wont change it back to my old windows machine again.
I mean for some IM work there are definitely no OSX version but using Paralells desktop is the solution for everything. I run everything which is not supported by OSX on that and it works great...
Of course, Apple has its price :/
Yeah but with that price comes reliability and quality. My brother has the macbook 13" and i must say it looks nice and its really quick.
I guess i'm going to get a mac
I rely on my favorite PassMark web site to look for the fastest CPU to pick to be used for building the desktop PCs/servers.
Today's fastest Intel CPU at damn good price is: i7-2600 ($295)
Note: I never pay for the outrageous top-end CPU price, only few tiers below.
If you buy a Mac it looks like you buy a car that can only go in 10% of roads

After I wrote a long reply going into detail of which is better... Had no urls, no links, no pictures, no email adress and obviously wasn't trying to sell anything.
Anyways short version...
mac > alienware in this specific case. (bigger screen, better processor)
Bottom line: Both are junk and overpriced and no you don't get "quality with mac" that so many of you claim here. It's same exact parts inside as a so called "PC" computer just at double the price.
Seriously for the price you listed you can get a really nice laptop with some nice specs. So maybe consider looking into different brands?
Macs=not for a blackhatter, Windows=definitely for a blackhatter
